Fiber Optic Center News
San Jose, Calif., July 29, 2020VIAVI Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced the introduction of the Xgig 5P8 Analyzer Platform for PCI Express® 5.0 5.0, allowing equipment manufacturers to ensure performance in accordance with the latest revision of the ubiquitous serial computer expansion bus standard.

The PCIe 5.0 standard doubles data capacity over a PCIe link to 32 gigabits per second per unidirectional channel, or greater than one terabit per second across the common 16-lane bidirectional slot interface. This acceleration of speed correlates with the performance demands of emerging bandwidth- and compute-intensive applications such as 400 Gigabit Ethernet, IoT, hyperscale and artificial intelligence (AI). Component manufacturers need test platforms that will validate performance according to the standard, while maintaining familiar user interfaces and management environments to minimize training needs and startup costs.

The Xgig 5P8 platform provides protocol analysis for PCIe 5.0 traffic at all layers of the protocol stack. It supports link widths up to 8 lanes, and link speeds to 32 GT/s. Providing both PCIe and NVMe protocol analysis functions, and full downward compatibility to PCIe 4.0, the Xgig 5P8 Protocol Analyzer expands the family of VIAVI protocol analysis products. In today’s complex, multiprotocol environments where integrated analysis with other interfaces such as Ethernet, SAS, and FC are required, the Xgig 5P8 connects with other VIAVI analyzers designed for these protocols to provide time correlated multiprotocol views.

The Xgig 5P8 chassis has 128 GB of memory and flexible allocation to capture and save multiple data traces. The chassis provides advanced PCIe and NVMe level trigger and search capabilities designed to speed debug and problem resolution time. Interposer autotuning greatly simplifies and speeds system use, and enables repeatable capture results.

“PCIe 5.0 is the protocol designed to support the emerging future of data communications,” said Tom Fawcett, Vice President and General Manager, Lab and Production Business Unit, VIAVI. “We’ve understood this through our work with the leading players and industry bodies in this space. As a result, the Xgig 5P8 is ready out of the gate to support the range of capacities and test cases developers and manufacturers require to ensure their products meet standard performance specifications.”
